If buying wrought iron ones from a wrought iron dealer, they commonly can do installation as well.

Otherwise, concrete contractor routinely does this, though finding one to take this small a job will be tough. Handyman should be able too - just be sure he does not get too close to the edge with the fasteners and spall off the stone - in stone and brick expansion anchors, while cheapest, are risking breaking pieces off with the expansion of the anchor - safer to use spin-in epoxy or resin-encapsulated anchors. The individual epoxy/resin tubes (come in various sizes for different size bolts and hole depth) have very limited shelf life, so usually only available at stone vendors and masonry supply yards where they sell a lot of them.

Second best anchoring mediu, is anchor bolt cementatious grout.
